about

Sometimes the saddest news has a way of finding you.

And you fight it best you can but there is not a thing you can do to change it or stop it.

lyrics

Sleeping on this mattress dressed
These condescending bits of breath
And these packages, these trials these tests
They're breaking by heart.

Broken legs and burst balloons
New Years Day here in this waiting room
While they're picking cards, they're bending spoons
They're breaking my heart

Black words across the ocean - they sink like a stone.

Little birds that don't fly back
I lay awake at night here and I count these cracks
As I second guess these surprise attacks
They're breaking breaking my heart

Black words across the ocean - they sink like a stone.
Black words across the ocean - when you say it like that, I wish I'd never had known

With paper cups for our smuggled booze
We forget the things here that we did not choose
But when I look at what they've done to you
Its breaking my heart

Black words across the ocean - they sink like a stone.
Black words across the ocean - when you say it like that, I wish I'd never had known
